Chinese New Year is finally upon us and it is a joyous celebration ushering in that auspicious year of the water dragon. The dragon in general is said to be a pretty lucky year, often associated with marriage and family. On that note, Habbo isn’t leaving you out of the celebrations!
With the sparkling Chinese New Year furniture released and ready for you in the catalogue, it’s time to participate in some events. Habbo have posted two wonderful and pretty easy events for everyone to take part in. One involves helping the festive Red Dragon Restaurant, which simply involves stating the special dish of the day. The dish itself is conveniently placed on a stickie note, whilst more information may be found out from the 5-star chef Hannibal Poddington (I heard he cooks up quite a feast!) To enter the poll you simply go to the restaurant and an automatic pop up will show up conveniently on your screen with instructions. The winner of this easy competition involving culinary delight will win themselves and even more delightful Fortune Cookie Badge and what’s more, the competition runs all the way through till the 3rd of February, which means a new poll with a new fortune cookie being released every day– a whooping ten Fortune Cookie Badges are up for grabs to make that Habbo profile look even more sparkly!
After crunching those numbers, you might want to crunch on a fortune cookie and Habbo has just the thing for you with its second competition. This competition involves you submitting a fortune to feature on one of the many fortune cookies handed out within the next few days. The Habbo staff team will pick the best ones and you may win a surprise prize when the winners are announced on Monday 6th February. Remember, creativity is the key and so is something short and witty, as Habbo doesn’t have space to have an essay of a fortune on their cookies! To enter for you chance to win big, click here.
Now with all the culinary related news put aside (that did make me hungry!), there has also been a cool effect released in the form of a dragon. Of course dragon dancing is a special part of any Chinese New Year and with this being the year of the animal itself, it becomes extra special. You can grab the effect, costing 50 pixels in the group furniture section catalogue and scare your friends with that red face!
The general reaction on Habbo has been one of excitement and joy. People, even from cultures that do not celebrate this festive tradition have been gearing up for the fun on-client. However, one general complaint was that this competition seems too easy and there is not enough being done for such as big festival, especially for our users who migrated from the now merged Habbo Singapore.
With that note, on behalf of the whole Habbox news team I bid you all ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’ and may peace and prosperity be with you in the year of the dragon! Also, remember to click ‘read more’ to submit your views and emotions over the celebrations.
